Commuting at Cabrini
Cabrini welcomes commuter students and offers many services and opportunities specifically designed to enhance the commuter experience at Cabrini.
Message for Commuters Using Public Transportation:
Our Public Safety Office has a “Commuter Corner” that includes a large map of the SEPTA routes and a laptop that can be used to find the quickest and least expensive way to use public transportation to access Cabrini.
If you plan on commuting via public transportation to campus, please contact Student Life at Christine.firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may assist you with information.
The Center for Student Engagement and Leadership (SEaL) has a liaison that represents the needs and wants of commuter students. The Commuter Engagement Intern also represents the voice for the commuter student population and plans events throughout the year.
Cabrini has even found a way to welcome first-year commuter students into the program of Living and Learning Communities (LLCs). The Cabrini Cruisers Living and Learning Community is designed specifically for commuting first-year students to explore their talents and develop leadership skills.
To learn more about the different services and opportunities Cabrini offers commuter students—appreciation days, breakfast bars, carpools, Commuter Crew, lockers, lounges, meal plans, newsletters, snack shacks—or to suggest other ideas for commuters, visit SEaL on the first floor of the Widener Center.
Resources for Commuter Students
Commuter students have identified the following spaces as great places to spend that extra time between classes.
- Commuter Lounge: This lounge is located in the Library on the bottom level. The lounge features a refrigerator, microwave, keurig, TV, lockers, and boardgames, and is a great place for studying and socializing.
- Founder's Hall Lobby: The main lobby in Founder's Hall is a high-traffic area with couches for lounging and socializing.
- CRU5H: Located on the first floor of the Widener Center, CRU5H is a food venue offering a wide range of drinks, meals, and snacks with tables and seating. The space includes a TV.
- Library: The Library has many quiet spaces to study or work on one of the computers.
Lockers are available on the second floor of the Widener Center and in the Library Commuter Lounge. If you're interested in using a locker, all you need to do is sign up in the Student Engagement and Leadership Office, on the first floor of the Widener Center, and supply your own lock. Lockers must be cleaned out at the end of each academic year.
